9) Matt Schaub, Houston. As with all quarterbacks, health is always looming in the shadows. An early season injury to your starting quarterback is probably going to spell doom for your fantasy team. In 2011, Schaub missed a lot of time and probably cost some teams some victories. When he is healthy, he produces, like in 2012. He amassed over 4,100 yards, if not a lot of touchdowns. The Texans have a very good ground game and this steals some of his red zone thunder but if your league rewards for yards, there are a lot of worse options. After the aging Andre Johnson and tight end Daniel Owens, Schaub’s options for receivers are a little cloudy. I almost dropped Schaub from my top 10 because of his lack of targets. He remains because I think his team, with a strong defense and a strong running game, is suited for his game. That defense will provide plenty of possessions and the running game will allow his receivers to work more in one-on-one coverages and Schaub is too good not put up good numbers in those conditions.
